More information
  • You can save links to specific chapters from the Table of Contents. Right-click on the chapter title on the main page of the ebook and copy the link to the chapter to your clipboard. If a user follows the link, they will be taken to the same page and will need to either select the ePub format or click “Read Online” which will direct to the ePub by default before they are redirected to the specific chapter. The chapter link function only works if the user reads the ePub format, not PDF format. 
  • All the books available in VLeBooks are visible. To browse the content we have access to, please use "In my library".
